  Last modified on August 20th, 2020

We’ve been made aware that Gary Null’s Uptown Whole Foods, located at 2421 Broadway on the corner of 89th Street, will be closing for good. We received this info from reader Patricia McCann. A staff member confirmed, telling us the last scheduled day is Thursday, August 20.

UPDATE (8/20/2020): A Second Chance For Uptown Whole Foods?

The health food store first opened in 1993 (thanks to several readers who’ve pointed this out).

Gary Null’s Uptown Whole Foods (no relation to the Whole Foods chain) served fruits and vegetables, juices, a wide range of vegan, raw, macrobiotic, organic and gluten-free products, bulk and frozen items, herbs and supplements, and included a section for body care and beauty products.

According to this listing, the store is available for sale for $950,000.

In addition to the store, Gary Null has his own radio show and has written many books. Through these platforms, he has shared some beliefs which have created a hefty amount of controversy and pushback.

Null has also been known to speak out against vaccinations. Here’s a link to a 2009 video he published on his Youtube channel.

According to his Wikipedia page, “Reactions in the popular press and scholarly community to Null’s claims have been generally negative, and Null along with his publications have been frequently criticized for disseminating misleading information which can negatively affect the public’s understanding of health issues.”

Nevertheless, many will miss Gary Null’s Uptown Whole Foods. While reviews have been extremely mixed over the years, the store had many regular patrons and supporters.

More recent closings.
